C11.02 - Nanostructured Charge Collecting Materials for Highly Efficient Perovskite Solar Cells 
April 10, 2015   9:00am - 9:30am

All solid-state solar cells based on organometal trihalide perovskite absorbers have already achieved distinguished power conversion efficiency (PCE) to over 15% and further improvements are expected up to 20%. These novel organometal halide perovskite absorbers which possess exceptionally strong and broad light absorption enable to approach the performances of the best thin film technologies. Especially, the cost-effective solution process for perovskite solar cells at a low temperature makes them viable to realize flexible thin film solar cells. Efficient charge collection is one of critical issues in perovskite solar cells [1-3]. The charge collection efficiency for perovskite solar cells can be enhanced by controlling nanostructure or exploiting new materials. In this presentation, we demonstrate that nanostructured materials such as SnO2@TiO2 core-shell nanowires and 3D-ITO nanowire/TiO2 nanoparticle materials can facilitate charge transport in perovskite solar cell. Also, MgO nanolayer coated on TiO2 nanoparticles can efficiently retard charge recombination. Finally, we introduce highly bendable 12 % perovskite solar cells based on ITO/PEN substrates [4]. The energy conversion efficiency did not change after 1000 cycle of bending test with 10mm bending radius which demonstrates a feasibility of highly bendable perovskite solar cells without efficiency degradation.
